Editors' review

Free 3D Photo Maker is an easy-to-use tool for creating 3D still images by combining two images or processing a single image. It offers several 3D image algorithms and several interface language choices, but most of what it does is automatic. To view the 3D effects it creates, you'll need a pair of anaglyph glasses. Don't worry, you probably already have as pair somewhere; we're talking about those paper-framed glasses with different colored lenses that you used to get at 3D movies.

Free 3D Photo Maker has a simple user interface based around side-by-side image displays with separate browsing buttons. The default selections are two identical (or nearly identical) images, which is the usual way of creating 3D images and offered an effective demonstration of the program's capabilities. But we were interested in the check box that tells Free 3D Photo Maker to use just one image to create 3D effects. We selected the option, browsed to an image, and opened it in the left-side window. Next we selected an output directory and whether to show a preview. Finally we selected an algorithm from a drop-down list offering these anaglyphs: optimized, color (red-cyan), true (dark), gray, and yellow-blue. When we were ready, we pressed a button labeled Make 3D. The program almost instantaneously displayed our finished 3D image in a full-screen preview. The only options are language choices and updates.

We tried each of the algorithms, with a variety of results. Not all the 3D images we created were totally successful, but we were certainly impressed with Free 3D Photo Maker's ability to generate believable 3D images from almost any snapshot. Subject matter and composition matter in 3D images, and even with successful conversions, some will look better than others. We sure had fun with this free tool, though.

    "Not worth ANY stars"

    July 05, 2013   |   By quisizyx

    Version: Free 3D Photo Maker 2.0.23.622

    Pros

    Free (No not really, TANSTAAFL) There are no Pros.

    Cons

    Does only anaglyph no other 3D format

    Wants to "phone home". Disconnected from iNet, tried to "register?" on install & couldn't locked up computer.

    Tried uninstall, uninstalls forever & never removes software. Had to power down & reboot to stop uninstall. Had to remove "manually". Suspect tries to "phone home" during install so no iNet connection locks up uninstall.

    Not worth the "FREE" DL. TANSTAAFL. You pay in time & grief.
    (There Ain't No Such Thang As A Free Lunch)

    Summary

    You will regret the DL & install. Avoid. Don't even thimpk about this thang. Move on. Nothing 2 C here.

    "Many Issues with this!"

    July 29, 2012   |   By kindlewood

    Version: Free 3D Photo Maker 2.0.17

    Pros

    It's free...that's it...

    Cons

    You have no control over the image alignment, so you have no control over how 3D the image will turn out. Default settings (which you can't adjust) don't do a good job of making a single image 3D.

    MORE IMPORTANTLY, this product tries to install a toolbar onto your browser, every time you close the program!!! It only gives you 5 seconds to click off the option, or it will automatically install it!

    Summary

    STAY CLEAR OF THIS PROGRAM!!! It doesn't do a good job of making images 3D, doesn't offer ANY controls for the user, and it CONTINUOUSLY TRIES TO INSTALL THEIR TOOLBAR ONTO YOUR INTERNET BROWSER!

    "Not very useful for me"

    July 27, 2011   |   By Reniono

    Version: Free 3D Photo Maker 2.0.12

    "Almost Useless - Can't Align L & R Photos"

    January 15, 2011   |   By crokinole

    Version: Free 3D Photo Maker 2.0.6

    Pros

    It is totally free. It is very easy to use. It comes from a trusted software developer known for excellent products.

    Cons

    No way to align the Left and Right photos before combining them.

    Summary

    You can not make 3D photos unless your Left and Right images are already aligned.

    This simply adds red and blue fringes and overlays the images.

    If you have existing stereo pairs, say scanned in from an old stereo slide, or taken with a stereo camera, then F3DPM v.2.0.6 will be fine.

    But if you need to rotate or align the two images, this does not work.

    Also if you wish to adjust the 3D effect this software does not work.

    Until DVDvideoSoft updates this free software, it is not particularly useful.
